Water County To Establish New Town
Residents Crying the Blues
Submitted by Chris Cowinstein from the stupid-punny-headlines dept.
Blue Sea, Water County -- I'm standing right outside the crowd of
people gathered in protest as their addresses could be changed to
something completely unacceptable. Residents of the former Blue
Sea are disgruntled and are complaining that they feel insulted by even
the suggestion of the new name.
"I'm just not very sure that the council has really thought through
what they're doing," said Jane Palinstoff, a resident of Blue Sea for
almost 12 years. "I mean, Yellow River? What kind of a name
is this? Why is this even on the ballot? Sure it's nice
that they're giving us an option to pick the name, but I'm just a
little concerned about the fact that they would even think about
changing out town's name to something so completely disgusting."
The commitee chosen to select the names for the ballott has spent two
months in deep thought trying to come up with possible names for the
new town. They've spent hundreds of tax dollars, and thousands of
doughnuts to try and solve this delima. "We never thought about
insulting the people of Blue Sea," claimed
Billy Boolinsteem, one of the individuals involved in the commitee for
selecting names for the ballott. "We simply looked at the fact
that Blue Sea begins with a color and we thought that since we're
splitting the town in two, it would only be fair to the residents of
the new town that their name should also be a color. We were
going call it Red River, but that just sounded too gory. Yellow
is a nice, peaceful color, and we wanted to send the message that this
is a peaceful place to be. We just didn't, or at least I didn't,
think about how it would sound, and I, personally, would like to
apologize for the disgrace that we have brought upon the former
residents of Blue Sea."
Here are the names currently on the ballott:
Even though there are several options to choose from already, not all
of the residents are ready to accept the apology:
- Peaceful Springs
- Tamborine Channel
- Ear Canal
- Yellow River
"Apologize?" inquired resident Shirley Japerstonalin, 62. "All
they're going to do is apologize? Why don't they issue a new
ballot without the name Yellow River? In fact, I'm not even sure
I believe they didn't think about it. They thought about Red
River being bad. How could something like Yellow River not even
raise one flag for anyone there?"
These are good questions for the council of Water County.
Unfortunately they were unable to comment at the time.
It seems, however, that not everyone is annoyed by the presence of the
name Yellow River on the ballott. James Pickleston, 11, had this
much to say about it:
"I think that it's a really funny name and if I were old enough I would
totally vote for it."
His mother then commented that it was fortunate that he was not old
enough to vote.
